10 Christmas-Crazy Towns
From magical train rides to magnificent parades, these cities and towns are home to some of the biggest and best holiday events in the country. Tour 10 places that celebrate Christmas in a big way.
A picturesque town of just 3,000 sitting on the edge of the Green Mountains in central Vermont, Woodstock turns back time when Christmas comes around. Each year, an equestrian parade with more than 50 horses and riders kicks off Wassail Weekend, a celebration rooted in medieval traditions. Other events during this old-fashioned festival include a yule-log fire, a luminary lighting and a craft fair. Plus, the entire town gets in the Christmas spirit by decorating with traditional wreaths, pine garlands and lights. Photo courtesy of the Woodstock Vermont Area Chamber of Commerce
